Thread: mkdirhier: command not found

  1. #1

    Default mkdirhier: command not found

    After migration from suselinux 9.3 to opensuse 11.1 and recompiling a large simulation program with gcc via makefile, I get the message: /bin/sh: line 1: mkdirhier: command not found
    make: *** [/home/hbissem/pvm3/bin/UNKNOWN] Fehler 127
    Who can help, how to find or install the command "mkdirhier"
    Thanks in advance

    For these kind of errors I often find webpin a useful resource, if you look it up on webpin then it comes up with:
    xorg-x11-util-devel (7.4)
    Include Files and Libraries mandatory for X11 Development.
    contains /usr/bin/mkdirhier
    So do ONE of the following:
    1. Use the one click install from webpin
    2. In a console as root zypper install xorg-x11-util-devel
    3. look it up in YaST software management and install it.

    Or, in 11.1, make use of the command-not-found feature of bash. Just try to run the program at the command line and wait for the report.

    $ mkdirhier

    The program 'mkdirhier' can be found in following packages:
    * xorg-x11-util-devel [ path: /usr/bin/mkdirhier, repository: zypp (repo-oss) ]
    * xorg-x11-util-devel [ path: /usr/bin/mkdirhier, repository: zypp (openSUSE 11.1-0) ]

    Try installing with: sudo zypper install xorg-x11-util-devel
